The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books 2018 takes place Saturday, April 21 to Sunday, April 22 and Pen & Paper Writing Workshops will be there. If you live in the SoCal region and will be attending the festival, please come by and see us. We are booth #065. We will all be there: myself, C. Gregory Thompson, founder and fiction instructor, Sara Marchant, nonfiction instructor, and Senta Scarborough, screenwriting instructor. Cheryl Pappas, fiction instructor, will be with us in spirit.
Contests & Drawings, Oh My!
We plan to hold several contests and drawings. The prizes will be an 8-week class of your choice for all first place winners and our fun merchandise for 2nd and 3rd place winners. So, start working on that killer first sentence for a short story or novel (fiction), write that attention-grabbing introductory sentence for an essay or personal memoir (nonfiction), or that stellar logline for a screenplay or TV pilot (screenwriting). We will judge 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners in each category.
We will also have available our writing and reading-related merchandise: hats, t-shirts, coffee mugs and totes.
See you in April on the USC Campus.
